A Healthy Island is a Community-Engaged Island…

HIP hosts a Community Breakfast six times a year. We meet bi-monthly in January, March, May, July, September, and November on the Second Tuesday of the month at 7:30 am at the Community of Christ Church in Stonington.  Most of the area’s nonprofit organizations are represented at these breakfasts which provide the perfect opportunity to learn about needs you may have been unaware of, or to hear about volunteer opportunities which may be of interest to you. It’s a great way  to learn about all that’s going on in our community and to meet people you may not otherwise come in contact with. Everyone is welcome to attend, so even if you are not a member of a nonprofit group, please join us for a cup of coffee and light breakfast fare.

Lorraine Knowlton on Community Breakfasts:

“Healthy Island Project Breakfast times are one of my favorite things to do. It is so wonderful to open my church up for this gathering…I am always amazed everytime we meet by the number of services that are represented for all the ages-toddlers to the elderly-and for so many needs.

It seems that the problems and needs are endless and for some I’m sure it seems like there are no solutions. These breakfast times together may not supply every answer, but they certainly give much hope. Everyone leaves excited, and wanting to be on board. It is up to us then to determine where and to what degree we can and want to be a part of all this.”
